Christopher Hirz:


Christopher Hirz has been practicing in Santa Clara County since 2007 and is a longtime resident of Santa Clara County.  He graduated from Archbishop Mitty High School and earned his bachelor’s degree from San Jose State University.  He attended law school at University of the Pacific where he graduated, with distinction, in 2006.  He was awarded Honors in Trial Advocacy, the Witkin Award for Academic Excellence, and graduated as a member of the Roger J. Traynor Honor Society.  While in law school, Christopher was approved by the California State Bar as a “Certified Law Student”, allowing him to represent clients in Court and provide legal services to clients under the supervision of a licensed attorney, which he put to use representing low income clients at Community Legal Services, the on campus legal clinic at McGeorge School of Law.  He also clerked at the Victims of Crime Resource Center and at a well-regarded private law firm in the Sacramento area.

Christopher joined Del Ponte and Hirz in 2007 as an associate attorney and was subsequently made a partner in 2012.  He focuses his practice on Estate Planning, Probate, and Family Law matters and enjoys a diverse client base and caseload.  He is a regular volunteer with the Court’s Mandatory Settlement Conference and Settlement Officer Conference programs, has presented at the Court’s continuing education program, and is often appointed by Family Court Judges to represent minor children in contested custody matters.

In his spare time, he enjoys spending time with his daughter (especially anything Disney related!), watching the San Francisco Giants and 49ers, is an avid home gardener, and enjoys cooking.  He is a regular participant in the Santa Cruz Clam Chowder Cook-Off with his team “Clam Rock”, which has received multiple awards over the years, including Best Individual Boston Clam Chowder (2nd Place), Most Original Team (1st Place), and Best Theming Amateur Team (1st Place).
